Good practice policies to eliminate gender inequalities in fish value chains

Women are found in almost all fisheries-related occupations, and represent nearly half of the estimated 180 million or more people worldwide working in fisheries and aquaculture. But despite their crucial contributions to the fishery industry and to household livelihoods and nutrition, they are often invisible to policy-makers who have traditionally assumed that fisheries are largely a male domain. This paper highlights some of the key gender inequalities in fisheries and aquaculture value chains that lead to marked underperformance by women, and proposes some good practice policies that can lead to sustainable increases in production, processing and marketing of high-quality fish; increases in women’s incomes and those of their families; and a reduction in household food insecurity and malnutrition among the poor. 97 pp.
